Resumes Are Back in Style


I’m not fooling ya’.


I know, I know. There are a lot of people saying the complete opposite.


Well, I beg to differ.


Please don’t burn your resumes. They are not as old fashioned or out dated as you may have been lead to believe.


Now, believe me, I know that if you’re here, your purpose in life is not to work the traditional 9-5 job or a big ass corporation that hires underaged children in India.


The resume I’m talking about in today’s video has another shape + form. It doesn’t come in an 8.5 x 11 sheet or lavender scented. Yes, I actually sprayed Bed Bath + Body Works sprays on my resumes. Heck it worked!


Just hit play + you’ll see what I’m talking about.


take action now

I’ve got homework for your today. Ready to start kicking butt?


1. First, I want to challenge you to close your eyes + revisit that big T-Rex-sized goal of yours. Now, write it down + keep it close for constant reminder.

2. Then, I want you to break that goal into 5 petite size task at a time. These actions need to be accomplish in a day time. It could be hiring a virtual assistant + making that call you’re dreading + crafting your first video + listing your first item on Etsy. Your choice!

3. And last, but not least, find accountability allies that help you go the extra mile when the road gets foggy. And speaking of social accountability, why not use the comments below to record your actionable scheme? I’m brilliant I know (wink).


I can’t wait to see you shine. Even more!


In the mean time, this girl’s gotta run. I have a beach date with Mr. Heartmade + the forecast marks sunny clear skies + great waves + a whole lotta loving.


What’s on your weekend forecast?

    wonderful as always!
    I especially liked the part about “do on your blog what you want to be hired to do elsewhere.”

    WOW! so true!

    great video!! i feel the skills you (general you) learn in building your blog/shop/website, they could even lead you down a new and exciting path in the future (something you’ve never dreamed of) – you just never know. i love your energy and positive outlook!

    Angela: Hehehe I’m no video special effect guru, but I recognize the Tinker Bell sound from a mile far so I learned how to plug that before anything else LOL.

    Cheer for kick in the butts + getting down to business ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m always here if you need someone to talk my friend.

    Heather: Thank goodness. I was worried I had splurged too much on the police hat hehehehe.

    Beatrice: Thanks my dear. You sure know how to make me happy.

    Alicia: You GO GIRL! What a list! You have really nailed it down to some serious unstoppable magic. I’m cheering for you all the way. YOU CAN DO IT!

    Monica: Un abrazote a ti! Thanks for your support!

    Danielle: My friend I need to stop a second to thank you personally for commenting because you are for sure one of my forces + motors. If there was no Miss Merri maybe there wouldn’t have been FVT today. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart. (wink)

    Amy: Great point Amy! Is not only about being hired but about experimenting + playing + discovering what you love to do the most + what not so much. Brilliant! Thanks for your wonderful contribution!

    I also enjoyed this video too. Right now I’m all about breakding down my to-do list into bite size pieces. I feel that I get more quality work done that way. So today (following your advice), I just finished putting together our new lookbook and put it in English and Spanish. Feeling very accomplished right now ๐Ÿ™‚ For me apart from everything that we have for our biz, our lookbook is very important to show to buyers, the press, etc. So it’s like another version of our resume and I kept putting it off (I’m “time deprived” at the moment :).

    I’m definitely keeping this video in mind as I continue to build our brand.

    Take care!

  • Alicia says:

    Thanks, Mayi! I did everything on my list and I feel great about it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Now I’m waiting to hear back from the shops I contacted. If I don’t hear back this week I will follow up with a friendly call on Friday!

    Thanks for the inspiration! ๐Ÿ™‚
